quick idea in case anyone wants to make it, either as a standalone video footage or cs4 aep, is:
have a small text countdown embedded in a lower/upper third, that looks like those advertisements in all the videos you see on major sites, that has a “video starts in :20/ :19…etc down to zero”...
it would be easy enough to do myself in my NLE by hand…, but if anyone has a cool-looking one, that might be a useful lower third/upper third animation… (reason I’m asking is because in my free videos, I’m starting to make my own embedded advertisements, so it may look clever to have that type of effect, eg “Advertisement (:20)” that countdowns, as an overlay.
Ken Email me any sample if you have i will see what i can do these days.
Thank you you’ve made my day
Hi Misel, hey thanks – that’s perfect… I was just suggesting that (or similar) as an idea for a project to sell here; I hadn’t expected anyone to actually do something like that, especially so soon; thanks, I appreciate it. I’ve just bought two of your projects just now, as a thanks… much appreciated.
